Vision Dance Company’s first ever spring concert is this Thursday at 7 p.m. in the PAC. The show is free for all attendees.

“I’m really excited to get to perform with my full team and that we actually get a dance based concert just for the stuff that we like instead of a marching show,” dance captain Rachael Bischof said. “It’s nice to have our own deal.”

The 45 minute concert will consist of several group performances from the dance team. There will be two full team contemporary and jazz pieces, three small ensembles of contemporary, jazz and modern dance, and then finally, a senior performance at the end.

“The other leaders and I just working on cleaning up the dances right now,” Bischof said. “I’m really excited to get to perform with my full team and that we actually get a dance based concert just for the stuff that we like instead of a marching show.”

In the past, Vision has not put on any dance concerts after the fall semester due to most of the focus being centered around marching band season. Adding a spring concert was a collective decision made by all the dance directors.

“Directors actually made the decision to expand VDC to a full year program a year ago,” dance educator Holly Lyons said. “We wanted to give the dancers another performance opportunity to work toward and call their own. With that, the Vision Dance Co Spring Concert, ‘Visionary’, was created.”

Both Lyons and Vision Dance director Samia Mooney are actively involved in rehearsals. Lyons said this concert is formatted differently than other performances, like the full Dance Dept. Spring Show, which takes place in May.

“It is a different experience than performing on a football field,” Lyons said. “I am most looking forward to Vision performing in front of their biggest fans and community in a stage setting.”
